This thing is awesome!

After years of development, the U.S. Army has unleashed a new weapon in Afghanistan -- the XM25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System, a high-tech rifle that can be programmed so that its 25-mm. ammunition detonates either in front of or behind a target, meaning it can be fired just above a wall before it explodes and kills the enemy.

It also has a range of roughly 2,300 feet -- nearly the length of eight football fields -- making it possible to fire at targets well past the range of the rifles and carbines that most soldiers carry today.

I think they should be standard issue.

I'm sure the shells are a little spendy, but then we have plenty of money. [attach=1]

Who needs secrets? I'd want them to know what's coming for them! haha. If they were smart, they'd read articles like this one and then lay down arms and give up! HAHA.
